Comprehensive and practical advice and follow-through!

Our mental health services have for the last 3 years used the advice of Andy Johnston and his associates to develop from scratch and set up a complete psychiatric intensive care service, the first of its kind in our country. The advice included initial theoretical groundwork and training, on-site evaluation and recommendations on the best layout and setup. This was followed by practical design advice and training programme setup, as well as charismatic and thoughful theoretical and practical input. The final setup of the unit, hands- on training were also spot on. What was particularly impressive was the level of follow-up and continued advice given.

In summary, the consultancy advice of Andy Johnston was professional, timely and comprehensive, ranging from initial advice on "buy-in" of the PICU-idea to "tweaking" of the fully running unit. I know that without Mr. Johnston´s advice the implementation of our PICU-unit would not have been the success it has been and doubt that it actually would have come through. My highest recommendation goes to the very impressive knowledge, implemention skills and consultancy abilities of Mr. Johnston. CEO

National Conference

I recently worked with Andy as he was chairing a conference planning committee developing a national 'Commissioning for quality' conference on mental health and learning disability pathways. Throughout the course of the project, Andy consistently demonstrated great leadership in driving what was a "best in class" conference. Andy has extensive and up to date knowledge of the NHS and independent sectors in mental health and Learning Disability and this is enhanced by an impressive network of key contacts throughout the UK and abroad. I would not hesitate in recommending Andy and AndyJohnstonAssociates to anyone who requires an expert with a genuine passion for achieving the best outcomes and a "can-do', 'solution focused' approach to any challenge. The Conference was a great success and consideration is being given to A National Learning Disability pathway conference 'post Winterbourne'. Thank you. Commissioning Manager
